Amy’s Green Eggs and Ham

This whimsical green eggs and ham recipe is a great way to use hard-cooked eggs. It's a favorite at our house at Easter and all year-round. —Amy Church, Coatesville, Indiana

    This was a really good recipe, however the family is not big on broccoli so I replaced it with asparagus and that did the trick for us. It was really good, will make again!

    I love this recipe, my husband likes it, but my kids are not crazy about it (because of the broccoli). Since I'm the only one who is wild about it, I only make it once a year - on Dr. Seuss's birthday.

    This recipe appeared a few years ago in Taste of Home magazine - I made it every year for my church's Easter Breakfast and have made it many times since - love this recipe

    We enjoyed this dish very much - tho I would use just 1 tbsp. of dijon mustard next time - I also used a four cheese mix instead of cheddar, which was very tasty. As well, I used far less broccoli, more like 1 to 1 1/2 cups, but a bit more ham. Very nice dish.
